As we all have heard by now Jeff "Ox" Kargola passed away while riding with friends and family outside of San Felipe, Ox crashed while riding his dirt bike in the Rip to Tip event in Mexico. Jeff was attended to by medical personnel on site and was transported via helicopter to the San Felipe hospital where he passed away due to his injuries.
The celebration of his life has been felt across the web with photos, videos, fan comments rolling in, all remembering OX in their own special way. The Metal Mulisha crew put together an awesome video segment highlighting just who OX really was.
Official release from the Mulisha Crew.

Family, friends, and fans from around the world, send in thousands of videos and photos to help contribute and create Ox a tribute video of his amazing life. Please take a moment and check out the legacy of Ox. You can also upload some of your personal photos of Ox in our Remembering Jeff Ox Kargola photogallery.
Yesterday evening in San Clemente Sunny Garcia and the rest of his boys organized a paddle out for OX. He was known as a dirt rider but a huge passion of his was surfing, so it was only right he got a proper send off in the water.
